The Rev. Al Sharpton got all gussied up, donned a lab coat, and stood behind a nifty chemistry set to lecture the likes of Fox News, climate-change deniers, and the right wing in general on why global warming is a fact.
It happened as part of Sharpton’s “Politics Nation: Science Lab” segment on MSNBC Friday, using the arctic winter freeze besetting much of America this weekend as a springboard.
“These right wingers are boiling over with denial,” he said. “Just because it snows in winter doesn’t mean the planet isn’t getting warmer. Remember a UN panel said there’s a 90 percent probability that humans are the primary cause of global warming.”
“It sure doesn’t take much for the folks at Fox to hit their melting point. The results of tonight’s experiments are in. And we’ve deduced the right wing could use a new talking point.”
Here’s the clip from MSNBC:
As you might guess, reactions to Sharpton’s lecture indicated his syllabus might need a makeover.
